This weeks teasers is brought to you from 1984 by George Orwell, page 12.The program of the Two Minutes Hate varied from day to day, but there was none in which Goldstein was not the principal figure. He was the primal traitor, the earliest defiler of the Party's purity. All subsequent crimes against the Party, all treacheries, acts of sabotage, heresies, deviations, sprang directly out of his teaching. Somewhere or other he was still alive and hatching his conspiracies: perhaps somewhere beyond the sea, under the protection of his foreign paymasters, perhaps even - so it was occasionally rumored - in some hiding-place in Oceania itself.
Somehow so far 1984 reminds me a lot of Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy(which I haven't finished yet, I can't bare to read more about AK's pregnancy while I'm pregnant myself), even though Tolstoy describes a side of reality and Orwell's 1984 is a dystopian novel.
